Meet the Filmmaker: Tyler Holme, “Stockholm Sweet Home”

EFP: Why did you become a filmmaker?

TH: After I saw all 3 original live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies at a young age, I knew what I had to become.

EFP: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?

TH: Stockholm Sweet Home is a dark comedy about a young woman who gets kidnapped and locked away in a nondescript warehouse with a bickering couple. She then quickly realizes her captor may be the least of her worries. The actors and I wrote, produced, and shot the whole thing in a week as part of a week-long film camp at MbM studios in Chicago a few years back. The film had a nice little festival run. It screened at film festivals in Chicago, Portland, Nashville, Milwaukee, and elsewhere. We even got nominated for a few awards along the way, which was really nice.

EFP: What else are you working on?

TH: I recently wrote a humorous satire book lampooning health & lifestyle culture and social media influencers called, Beet Life. You can check it out, and buy a copy for your friends, family, and mortal enemies here: https://booksbybeetsbybeth.com/

EFP: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?

TH: A fun fact about this movie is that we shot the whole thing in one day for the price of an extra-large pizza from the pizza place down the street. It was probably the most expensive film I ever worked on up to that point.

EFP: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?

TH: You can check out more of my work on my website: https://www.tylerholme.com/

EFP: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?

TH:I would just like to thank EFP for screening our weird little movie, and I can’t wait to check out all the other great films from local Colorado talent!

Stockholm Sweet Home will screen during The Emerging Filmmakers Project on Thursday, February 17th, 2021 at The Bug Theatre.
